Peter Heimsoth's Modeling Jobs, Acting Auditions and Additional Experience
I was born in North Carolina and raised in Michigan and (mostly) Illinois. I grew up in Lombard, IL with my folks and my brother and sister, then moved to McHenry upon marrying my sweetheart Cynthia.
I've been in love with stage work since playing an angel in "Hansel and Gretel" when I was a wee one (I guarded Gretel's head).
While I could be perfectly happy doing community theater as a recreation, I have often wished to experience that sensation of which I have heard others speak: the delight, and almost embarrassment, of being paid for doing something you truly enjoy doing.
Also, having been told for years that I have a great voice and that I ought to do voice-overs (or was it that I had a good face for radio?), I enlisted in the Voices For All Master Class program and came out of it with a warm glow and a top-notch pair of demos, which can be heard at:
Trained voice (both speaking and singing) with a wide range of character voices and accents, also aptitude with recording and editing equipment, eye for detail and composition, creativity, and sense of humor. Good at taking direction, but not averse to making suggestions.
